What makes AJA special?

Education in the past has been about students passively receiving knowledge from a “sage on a stage”. Austin Jewish Academy, however, offers students new possibilities with hands-on experiential learning, social and emotional skill building, and exploration of timeless Jewish values. Students at AJA are empowered critical thinkers and compassionate problem-solvers.

The AJA is a superb school that delivers on all fronts: academic rigor,  diversity of curriculum, camaraderie, strong Jewish values, and flexible administration to meet the needs of our child and family lifestyle. The teachers, administration, and staff have become like a second family to us, by looking after our child with great care and with the personalized attention that every parent expects of a top-tier private institution.

Looking back over the past 9 years, I realize how exceptional the education has been here. My boys have been taught so much more than just facts. They’ve learned to think deeply, challenge themselves, collaborate with others, and give back to the world around them.

Our children graduated from AJA in 2012 and 2015, both having attended since kindergarten. During their time there, they were both nurtured and challenged and they have prospered since because of it. Both of our children attribute their love of learning to the experiences and the faculty they had at AJA. The small class environment, close relationships with their teachers and peers, and emphasis on project based learning have all played a big role in their ability to be so successful.
